  6. Need some help rigging the new Shake Up? Here is a quick tip. Because the Hybrid-Skirt works to give the lure action by itself, a larger soft plastic is not necessary ...more to help draw strikes.

  8. The “Shake Up” is now available! Check it out today exclusively at natescustombaits.com. — The Shake Up combines the vertical style head shape of the "Shakey ...more Head" together with a hand tied NCB Hybrid-Skirt. The bucktail stands vertically, working to conceal the hook. Once in contact with the bottom, the rubber skirt expands out, giving the lure outward flare and movement. Additionally, a screw lock is molded into the jig head allowing you to further customize the Shake Up by pairing it with any soft plastic lure of your choice. However, because of the built in action of the Hybrid-Skirt, this lure can be effectively fished right out of the package without any additional soft plastic pairing. Though it performs best fished vertically along the weed lines and drop offs, the Shake Up can effectively catch fish in a plethora of environments.
